Ace Ghanaian actor Fred Amugi has expressed disappointment at how the movie industry has been given very little attention by colleagues in government- both past and present.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Hitz Entertainment News, Fred Amug
i stated that colleagues who were once in the industry and were now Members of Parliament and also in government positions had totally neglected the industry.
He said, “No government has been fair yet to the industry, because we are struggling, the industry is still struggling …if you don’t have your own funds, it means you cannot do anything.”
He said although showbiz industry was fortunate to have some of its personalities in parliament and in government, they had turned a blind eye to the plights of the industry. Fred Amugi, however, failed to mention names.
The veteran actor stressed, “We used to have some of our own people in Parliament and they were the very people who were telling the whole world that government is doing nothing for the industry but yet [when] they had the chance to go into Parliament, [they] never said a word.”
Fred Amugi disclosed that due to this, some members of the arts and theatre were coming together under one umbrella to fight for the common good of the industry.
